The article presents the author's views on independent clinical research related to nephrology in Spain. The author states that cohort studies are necessary to put results of prospective trials in their true dimension, in addition to covering areas of clinical research which cannot be investigated using prospective trials. The author also opines that clinical researchers should have effective support so as to answer questions about the value of medicines whose low cost makes them unattractive.
